Shrooms Vs LSD

2 years, 4 months ago

I’ve had experience with mushrooms 3 times now. Every time was okay but nothing that i imagined it was made out to be. I had a bad trip the last time I did shrooms and got very sick during the absolute peak of the trip; causing me to think I had eaten poisonous mushrooms and was dying…Anyways I’ve just read the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and am interested in trying LSD. Which would you say is a better experience? I’ve heard from many people that LSD was a life changing experience. Steve Jobs even said it was one of the most valuable experiences of his life. Any thoughts?

They would never fight dude.

I seriously like them both equally. I’d call shrooms more female of a drug and acid more male. Shrooms put me in touch with mother nature and acid puts me in touch with God the creator.

Shrooms make me feel like everything is blooming and acid makes me feel like I am the blooming – more of a selfish high.

Do you no what I am saying??

both play vital roles in the dissolution of negative loops in your programmed system. program perfectly (not many do), or break these barriers to finally see real truth and not serve figments of your imagination.

LSD has more energy, more body feel than shrooms. It activates a greater number of receptors in the brain than mushrooms – so LSD can trigger euphoria more often, more body highs, and more energy.

Shrooms is just straight psychedelic.

i can speak on both. i got sick like you spoke of on shrooms before- i was at a crowded party and i smoked with them (i recommend neither based on my negative experience) and got terrible anxiety. (this was not the first time i had done them either) however, post illness i had one of the most amazing breakthroughs i have ever had in my life. i saw my entire life from start to finish, as i traveled in a time continuum, seeing memories i knew i had but could not recall directly if i had wished to do so. it was the most beautiful experience i have ever had. acid for me was more about the beauty i saw and heard rather than experienced- the music, the colors. fantastic. i liked shrooms better, but i feel like its a very personal choice that you can only make after multiple good experiences with both.

@josephm, Dude drugs don’t play vital roles in anything

@ijesuschrist, That makes a lot of sense to me

@kyleeg, You’re hot

@cubanoenfuego, It all depends on the individual but for me acid has always been a “fun” trip, I like to listen to music, dance and converse with people. It could just be the environments I have been in while on acid. It’s a blast though.

Mushrooms are a much deeper experience for me, especially in the higher doses. It’s almost like psychotherapy. I can’t tell you how many profound realizations have come to me on mushrooms, realizations about myself, other people, the world and even God. I can without a doubt say that mushrooms have changed me forever in the most incredibly positive way. I had a lot of skeletons in my closet and the mushroom made me confront them, bad things I had done, good things that I should have done, things about myself that had haunted me for years.

After confronting these things the mushroom said to me “now you can let go, now you can start over, let me show you how”. Now a lot of people would consider that to be a bad trip and for me, it was but after I let it all go it instantly turned into the most beautiful experience I have ever had. I enjoy acid but I have a very special reverence for mushrooms.After showing me all of the shitty things I’ve done They really allowed me to be free of my guilt and understand why I did what I did and showed me how to never do any of those things again.

I adore mushrooms and the lessons they have taught me. I can say with absolute certainty that they freed me from my biggest fears and taught me how to be a more loving human being. after literally four hours I was a completely different person. I have tripped since that event quite a few times and it is always a beautiful trip and they always tell me the same thing basically. “keep up the good work”.

Makes me smile just thinking about it :)

@kyleeg, Had something just like what you described happen to me too. It seems this is often how mushroom trips go, with the whole tough love aspect, if you will. My trip started off absolutely euphoric; I was loving it. Jamming to tunes in my car, watching the walls expand into the distance all around me, and generally just enjoying the cliche psychedelic trip. Then something turned inside my head. Perhaps it was the song ‘Nowhere Man’ playing over and over on my friend’s record player; I don’t know. But it was terrifying.
I got stuck in a negative thought loop, totally immersed in my mind. Then I started to recount many bad decisions, and I felt like I had let many people down. This went on for what seemed like an absolute eternity. Then I blacked out. And, like you, my life flashed before my eyes. I talked to my recently deceased mother, and started regretting being ungrateful for her while she was alive.
Suffice to say, it was some deep shit. It definitely changed me.

@albinomongoose, Change seems to be a very common word when we try to describe our experiences, especially with mushrooms. Mine was like yours, except the opposite. It started absolutely awful and terrifying and then after the mushrooms urged me to clean out my closet and let go of all the bad things I’d done, it was like instant night and day. From hell to heaven. I will never as long as I life forget that experience.

I am sorry to hear about your mother, I’ve heard a lot of people on mushrooms and DMT say that they were with their loved ones who had passed. I know that isn’t what you were trying to say but I find it interesting.

I know that to get the maximum effects of shrooms, you are supposed to fast for a minimum of 4 hours and drink orange juice after chewing the shrooms, preferably plain, for 15 minutes or more. Is it similar for taking acid? How long are you supposed to hold the tab under your tongue for to get the most out of it? Do you eventually swallow it, or should you let it dissolve?

i like acid better than shroomies. whenever im on a couple tabs, i find myself in total awe of the world, with the biggest smile ever. its almost as if i took MDMA, its just this uncontrollable happiness and bliss that i get from the world around me. every branch on the tree, ever pedal on a flower, it all makes me so happy! i love shroomies, dont get me wrong, but i find myself questioning things more on shrooms. instead of taking it as it is and finding beauty in everything, i question the world alot more. not saying that questioning things is bad, but i dont really reach that euphoric state of just pure genuine happiness.

plus, acid doesnt make you wanna poop your pants

but then again, you can sell bunk acid. i got dosed with 2C-E and 2C-I, thinking it was just regular white on white tabs. i dont think someone can fuck with shrooms and make it not the drug its intended to be

@TheSkaFish just put a tab under your tongue and let it sit there til it just completely dissolves. after like an hour it usually gets all like soggy and torn up and gross so i just swallow it. as long as its in your mouth, or swallowed into your body, you’ll trip and be fine

@danfontaine, That’s an interesting way to put it, but I can totally see where you’re coming from.

Set and setting seem to be more important than the type of drug for me. If you want a spiritual experience or thought provoking experience off either, they definitely give you that. But in my experiences I love acid at shows with music and lights. However, the one time I did shrooms at a show it was one of the best nights of my life. Acid doesn’t come with any of the nausea that accompanies shrooms though. I would say neither is a “better” experience. It depends on what you’re looking for and how in control you can be of your trip and your mind.

-All from my personal experience and own perspective. As with everyone else. Don’t take our word as truth, experience for yourself. :)

@danfontaine thank you very much lol

@albinomongoose that is crazy! sounds a lot like what i went through which is very interesting! im glad it had a positive effect on your life- i know mine did as well. i was in the car when this happened too, we were partying an hour and a half away and i begged my friends to take me home because i felt so awful. luckily one of them was sober enough to drive and we were in the car and pink floyd came on and thats when i had this epiphany, if you will lol

on a side note, i hate that psychedelics get such a negative reputation in the public eye because i really think they are more tools than drugs.

@cadeus333, I’ve had that sort trip progression too. For me, there always seems to be good and bad parts to mushroom trips, the psychological/egoistic obstacles come at the beginning or the end. Never had a trip that was completely good or bad, which, I think, is inherent to the value of the drug. As for communicating with my mom, I think it was caused by subconscious feelings I hadn’t dealt with. I sort of blocked it all out when she passed; despite being very close to her, I didn’t know how to feel. Thanks for the sympathy

@kyleeg, I was only in my car for a little while, not even driving, just parked and listening to music with my buddy. That part was all good. Music can definitely spur some profound experiences on mushrooms, and Floyd is perhaps the holy grail of trippy, deep, and intense drug-music, so I can imagine how it would foster your revelations. I agree they get an unfairly bad rep in society. I’m tempted to say a good shroom trip should be mandatory for everyone once! :D

heres a little metaphor I use…
Shrooms puts you in the passenger seat during your trip, while LSD puts you in the drivers seat. You are far more emotional on mushrooms than you are on LSD. LSD is more of a controlled experience allowing you to explore exactly what it is you want to while Shrooms provide a very uncontrollable trip.

They are both amazing experiences…i personally like to take mushrooms wit just a few other people who are also taking them..when it comes to LSD i enjoy experiencing it in new places(Atlantic City was an amazing experience and my first time)..In my experience mushrooms is more of looking into ones self and LSD is more of observing outwards

I did LSD for the first time recently & I can understand why we always compare shrooms and acid. Our minds are always trying to understand stuff & the easiest way to make yourself think that you understand something is to relate it to something else that it reminds you of. Its a way of dealing with new experiences.

I’d say shrooms & LSD are quite different but some how bring you back to the same place. Like I’ve felt the universal connectedness of one with both of them but in different ways, if that makes sense. I guess the same thing from different perspectives.

On LSD, it was more physical. Like I felt “myself” passing thru matter. Air was passing through me. I felt disassoictaed with the physical self. Like I was just consciousness. I wasnt this separate body. I existed in relation to everything. My perspective kind of just floated along so to speak.

On shrooms, the connection for me is less physical. Maybe mental? Idk. I understand and see it on a different level than on shrooms and I can’t really put it into words. But you get it. Lol

I went into my first LSD experience thinking it would be like my many previous shroom experiences and that set me up for a total shock. Both are amazing in different ways. I’m more familar with shrooms so I tend to want to lean more toward them when comparing but thats a biased opinion.

both drugs in my experience have had long lasting positive effects in my life. It most certainly is a life changing experience. You will have a different perspective than anyone else when you take each of these, so in terms of which is better, that is arguable with so many possible answers. Different people will tell you different things. Psychedelics are preparatory drugs. Since your mindset and other factors will effect how your high is..the possibilities are really so vast in what you can change or experience. My advice, do your research..prepare..and go on an adventure. There will be many treasures to bring back from these trips.
